Need some help with deciding screws. I am trying to put a IKEA METOD wall mount cabinet in our kitchen. It comes with a railing and the cabinet goes on it.
My wall is Gyprock with metal studs. I have got 32mm 8g screws but I am not sure if it's enough. You reckon I should go for 40 mm screws or 32mm is enough.
The cupboard I am trying to put is 600 mm wide and as per ikea recommendation needs 3 screws.
The metal studs in my wall are 400-450 mm apart so I can only put 2 screws and best. Any advice please? I.e
Is 2 enough or do I need to put other types of screws that go to Gyproc only and won't they harm the Gyprock?
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @kathuriamukesh. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
It's hard to give an answer on what would or wouldn't be suitable and if you could use fewer fixings than required. This is due to not knowing how your cupboard is constructed and that cupboards hold unspecified amounts of weight. Does the installation guide suggest that all three mounting screws need to be into the studs? If the installation guide is vague or has left you guessing, I believe the Ikea team might be better equipped to provide specific advice about their product.
